Anna Maria Island is a long, skinny island located just west of Bradenton and can be reached either via bridges from the main land or from Longboat Key, Florida. From Bradenton one can either travel west towards the Gulf of Mexico via Manatee Ave or Cortez Ave, depending on if one wants to visit the northern or southern area of the island. Either way, the island is small enough to take a ride from north to south. Anna Maria Island is a popular vacation destination with its beautiful beaches and quaint stores in one of its shopping areas. Anna Maria Island has a lot of full-time residents and many people from out of town are coming here to spend the winter.
